By Ros Clarke, 31 Mar 2021

The Spring 2021 edition of Crossway is now out!

Articles in this issue include:

Where are the working classes? Gary Jenkins looks at some reasons for the estrangement of the working class from the Church of England, and suggests ways in which we should respond.

Class prejudice - education in the CofE. Mark Wilson draws on his own background growing up in a UPA parish to discuss education and training for working-class ministry.

Selection for ordination in the CofE. Andy Greenhough explains how a new discernment process should lead to more candidates from under-represented groups being selected for ordination in the Church of England.

Reaching the masses. Ros Clarke shows how J. C. Ryle modelled a ministry which could ‘reach the masses’.

Ministering in a working-class parish. Andy and Amanda Brewerton share their experience of serving a church in an ex-mining community.

Dark dispensations. Lee Gatiss shares some comforting truths and timely warnings for times of trial from a sermon of Charles Simeon.
